About Younas Chowdhry

Younas is currently is serving as an Atlas Corps fellow and Training Manager at Atlas Corps, in Washington DC. There he is running Atlas Corps' Global Leadership Lab for international development professionals. In 2009, while he was in college, Younas came up with an idea to start a street theater for underprivileged children, where he would teach the children of factory workers how to act and produce plays, as a means of creating cost effective entertainment for average laborers in the community. The plays he selected highlighted the problems and plight of the poor and other societal issues. The project is still in existence – called Laal Theatre. Younas also is the co-founder and general manager at Social Awareness Media and Art Junction (SAMAAJ).
